~ Tablescape Thursday ~

Welcome to Tablescape Thursday hosted by Susan @ Between Naps on the Porch~

This week I put together my 2nd fall tablescape of the season. This one was a lot of fun!

My daughter and I made mini 'pumpkins' { carrot cake } as seen on last months Southern Living magazine cover...except ours weren't as large { or as pretty } but they were fun to make and tasted great. The table runner was a birthday gift from my dear friend Cindy. Thank you~ I love it!

Note: You may click any picture to enlarge.

I normally would not add pink with fall colors....but I found the fish-shaped silverware holders at a craft show last weekend and I HAD to have them. I thought they were fun and added a bit of I HAD to buy 3 different sets. :)

I used some of my everyday creamy white stoneware~ Marshalls
flatware~ Walmart years ago
bird/candle centerpiece~ Michael's last year
leaf tea-light holders~ Kirklands
glasses~ a gift...many years ago :)

That's my tablescape this week~ I can't wait to see what everyone else has done!

Thank you Susan for hosting~Ya'll go by & pay her and all the participants a visit.

Have a wonderful rest of the week!

Hi Jessica
Your tablescape is stunning. I am loving the red and gold color scheme and candles. The bird/candle centerpiece is beautiful.

Okay, this is what I mean I can't do a tablescape! Your's is beautiful. My tables are functional but not pretty. I never would think of all the extras like the fish silverware holders! I love everything about this. I guess I'll just have to leave the talent of tablescapes up to others and enjoy looking at theirs. I just don't have an eye for doing it but I love it when I see it done! Me

This is such a unique tablescape. The fish silverware holders are great, but do you think that the kitty on the chair thinks that they are real???

Betty said...

How pretty is this! Your fish are unique, and look perfect.

Fabulous table! Thanks for sharing and have a great day!

Jess, you did a great job on this TT. I love that your stuff is from "long ago". You're smart not to pitch things, as you never know when you'll want to use them in a different way. I could kick myself for all that I got rid of when we moved. Now, I'm just buying it all again. :/

Very nicely done TT, Honey!

Jeanette said...

You have a great eye! The pops of color bring your table alive!

Brown and pink make a refreshing look for fall -- the surprise of it makes it fun!
